I was using GIMP's pathing tool to try and take this pic and color it.

Lessons learn:

1. Pathing tool is actually pretty easy to use.
2. Actually coloring things that aren't the lines you made with the pathing tool is not.
3. GIMP does not like multi-layered PNGs and will squash them into a single layer when you save the image and exit.

Some protips!

1- GIMP only saves layers in its own native format, .xcf.(And a few more ones, IIRC. Multilayer PNG is kinda weird as a whole) It might be a good idea to save the whole thing in .xcf as you work on it, and export it to PNG when you actually want to post it somewhere, or you are done with it.

2- are you using the pathing tool to color?

Sounds like a good idea to me. Thanks Tangy.

I'm not. I'm just being lazy and using the fill tool, which is terrible.

Seconded. Recently having start to use Path Tool in Gimp myself, please answer how the hell you are coloring with it.

I mean, just do the coloring under the lineart layer with th pencil tool
>> No. 1736455
File 142162278965.png - (230.21KB , 1300x790 , Completely innocent cosplay.png )

Try this:

1- Lineart of the drawing on one layer.
2- Make a new layer for your coloring. Put it under the lineart layer.
3- Set the lineart layer to multiply. That way the black lines will show over your colors.
4- Select lineart layer, magic wand selection.
5- Change to color layer, Selection > Expand, Fill tool.
6- Repeat ad infinitum.


Also this.

Good idea, thanks you two.

Also, I noticed I can use colors other than black for my lines. I'm not entirely a fan of hard black lines, but would is be simpler to just stick with those instead of complicating matters with colored lines?

File 142162309866.png - (266.37KB , 1478x1024 , Dragotea din dress.png )

Colored lines might be a tad more complex, but you can still pull it off. I'd just put another layer over the lineart one, set it as color, color the lines, and then merge both so the topmost layer doesn't color the last one.

That's why you wanted the pathing tool for?

Pathing tool is good for digital inking. As in, taking that sketch and making all lines black, solid, and clean of all the dirtyness in the paper. Though that can also be done by vectoring, or just some clever adjustment.

I haven't played with coloredlineat yet, but I'd suggest making a different lineart layer for each color, in that case.

Thanks for all your help, Tangy.


A good idea if I ever try that again.

Well that's something you can put on a to do list. Link's Awakening was the only Game Boy game I had for years, and it was so wonderful that it was all I really needed. I probably put over 300 hours into playing it.

I also permanently broke my copy by abusing the screen hopping glitch once I figured out about it, which sucked.

I'd never put much thought into the story beyond the facts, but yeah, that ending is pretty powerful for such an old game.

I ought to see if I can pick it up again somehow.


The only other Game Boy games I'd played were Tetris and Pokemon Red/Gold. The former was given away very early on, and the latter two came much later for me.

Didn't you have a MC server up or something?
>> No. 1736520
Well, neither did I, but the facts are enough. The entire game creates this comfy island full of happy people just doing their thing and Link's adventure is essentially to destroy it. By the end of the game the monsters are literally begging you to stop, because they know that completing their quest means the entire island will vanish entirely forever, them included.

And they're right, and it does.

That final fadeout with Marin, it was just agg.

I don't remember what all I had anymore. I know I had Tetris and Game & Watch Gallery. I feel like there was a third. I had a bunch after the Color came out, though.


"It's just a dream." seems to be a recurring theme in video games, and for some reason every one of those games results in you ending it. I think one of the best examples is Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, where the "villain" of the game is actually a kid who used to be in a wheelchair with a deadbeat father and actually dead mother. And he creates this legitimately really great world using imagination and this old book that you found with him or something, I don't remember, but you end up shattering the whole thing.

Just "It's not real, back into the wheelchair you go!" like it's the righteous noble thing to do.

That's actually two different characters in FFT:A. Doned, the one in the wheelchair, is Marche/the main character's younger brother. Mewt Randell is the bullied kid with the deadbeat/alcoholic father and dead bmother.

The game would've been a lot better if it actually gave reasons for why the world had to go back to normal. There's definitely reasonable arguments for it.


I know all that. What I mean was that it didn't move me to tears. Crying just wasn't something I did back then, unless I was physically hurt.

S'all right. How are you?
>> No. 1736531
It's the Matrix argument - rather live in the real world than in a dream, cuz the real world is real and thus better. I'm not super sold on this myself. FFT:A was interesting because it was a group all-or-nothing, with one person making the decision for everyone else without their consent. But honestly the game never really explored that angle too much other than to make those opposed to returning to the real world the villains.

Incidentally, FFT:A is one of the very small number of games I 100%'d, even getting those bonus missions where you go on a rampage outing corrupt judges as Cid.

Ah, yeah. Well it hasn't happened since. Like I said, first game, and I spent a loooong time just beating it at all. I got stuck a lot. I was hoping for a happier ending.
